Only a fool would cheer the banning of Tommy Robinson by Facebook and Instagram. It doesn’t matter if you like or loathe him. It doesn’t matter if you think he’s a searing critic of the divisive logic in the politics of diversity or Luton’s very own Oswald Mosley in Jack Wills clobber.

And what would the dead , who gave everything they ever had to preserve our freedom have to say ………. It matters not , not anymore.  A miners gala and a union flag – what could be more British and more hopelessly old-fashioned ?  And what of Treason , or is that just a word in some old book that nobody reads or cares about any more ?

Only time will answer these questions – and time is running out…………
